User Reviews for Polarr

great app but a few bugs

i’ve been using polarr for over a year now and it’s always served me well. i’d been putting off writing a review for polarr for a good amount of time now though because polarr itself is a great app, i just thought my problem would’ve been mentioned by other users and been fixed by now, but my problem still exists. the app itself is very easy to use and has TONS of features to use for pretty much every type of photo. my problem is that after editing and exporting maybe 6 photos at a time (individually instead of with the batch export feature), when i try to open another picture polarr either freezes and crashes or very tightly crops the photo (usually when there is a face in the picture). i don’t think it has to do with the hardware polarr is being running on. this has been happening to me for a few months now on my ipad pro and even recently on a new iphone.

What happened?

Why was the layout and the app itself redesigned? It was perfectly fine before where you could just scroll your fingers across and measure up to 100 or down to -100, simple yet useful and refreshing to make my pictures pop. Now it’s just plain and looks like you, no intention to offend or accuse, made it appear to look like the Darkroom app layout. It’s also glitchy my photos go blank when editing and only reappears when I click the before picture and never shows the picture I was in the midst of editing. In my opinion, the new things you’ve added are okay it would’ve been fine in the original layout and just as pleasing without the aesthetic to “just get it edited it doesn’t matter what it looks like so we made it all black” change. It’s also confusing, you hit adjust and flicker some changes and hit the check button and you’re like “huh? I have to edit all on the same tab?” it’s confusing having to remember I have to edit all of them on one tab itself that’s just sitting in a line above the adjusters instead of being able to hold down the adjusters and change it to what pleases you. Other than that it’s great.

Used to love, but the new update messed everything up.

I’ve been using Polarr since late 2016, and for the most part it’s been pretty great, with a few bugs in between and issues with the quality, but the problems were fixed quite quickly. I purchased Polarr Pro’s selective adjustments in around 2017 and it worked fine, but recently with the new Polarr SO many new issues have risen. The first time I updated it to the new Polarr, it would not let me save any of my selective adjustments. Gradient, color masks, none of them would save. Sometimes it would crash, other times it wouldn’t even save as the filter I had filtered it as, but instead another filter I had previously made?? Recently, a few issues have been fixed but new problems have started. Everything including gradient and radial all work with my purchases but when I add the color scale to a color mask, it doesn’t save. The color mask is still there, but the actual color scale is zero. Please fix these issues, or bring back the old Polarr and work on the new one on the side. So many new issues that me and quite a few of my friends who have been using it for a long time are giving up on it.

amazing app

i’ve been using polarr for 2 yrs now! the amount of suggestions polarr gives for you to create amazing filters is incredible because not a lot of filter creating apps have all these suggestions that polarr gives. especially the overlays tool, i really like that option because usually, you’d have to go to another app to place overlays. i also really love that polarr now has the protect filter because a lot of us filter creators were dealing with people stealing our filters and claiming them as their own. so now that they have this option, i use it all the time! i’d say the only option i wish polarr would add is a delete folder, where you had deleted filters from other creators you’ve saved and your own. i had an issue a few days ago, where i needed to use a filter, i couldn’t find it because i had deleted it a few days before that. it was very frustrating that i had deleted that filter without knowing so and there was no way i could get it back.but other than that, this app is amazing, and i really appreciate how polarr’s instagram account interacts with other filter users on instagram and how they have different challenges for people to participate in! it goes to show that they really care about their users!

My Go To Editing App!

Polarr has made me more of a creator considering their thousands of filters and adjustments available to use. I can just let my mind roam free without thinking of what the end will look like. Usually, in the end the pictures always look beautiful. It has introduced me to different adjustments i was never aware of. My favorite aspects throughout the app most likely would have been the filters, and the creators within the app. They make filters almost daily for our use. It’s just awesome! Using others’ filters & my own help me create more content by letting me just create the image I have in my mind. If I have a photo and think there should me more of a certain hue or sharpness, I’ll make a filter of it! And if I can’t get what I’m looking for, I search the discover tab! Overall, Polarr is just an AWESOME way to express yourself and a unique way to figure out your own style and create inspiring photos!

New Update is Awful

Polarr was by far my favorite photo editing app in the market, and I was happy to upgrade to Pro. The UI design was intelligent and intuitive. I used the app multiple times a week to edit photos for a small business I work for.I truly hate this new update. I don’t understand why Polarr changed the UI so dramatically and to such a poor design. The new UI is now very similar to most interfaces I’ve seen in the marketplace (including the editing software in Apple Photos), which not only removes a key differentiator of Polarr, it also leaves it feeling clunky. Why would I use Polarr if the design is similar to what already exists in Apple installed software? Or similar to another app on the marketplace? Not only is the layout of the editing capabilities now more obstructive, you can’t even rotate the screen! It’s very annoying to edit all my photos in a vertical view, rather than landscape. Maybe I’m just missing something?It’s rare that I leave reviews, especially negative ones, but there honestly isn’t anything I like in the new update. I felt very loyal to Polarr and truly disappointed.

Change it back now

I’m so happy to see that I am not the only one who is completely infuriated with the new update. Why would you completely change an entire app so that even experienced users are dumbfounded. I can’t for the life af me figure out the set up for the new way that overlays work, I cant even seem to apply an image in the style of a gradient like was able to do before. From 5 stars to 1, if could I’d give it none. You were a top rated app, why would you make such a move, that was dumber than dumb, at least have the courtesy to roll it out slowly. Not all at once. I had not known how much more useful this app was over my previous go to until the last few months. But once I really played around with it, it soon became my newest go to. I wish I had never updated. Also why is there not an easier way to delete my custom overlays, y’all didn’t bother to reconcile that situation. Who ever made this decision should be fired, or given a second chance to fix this mess that now takes up room on my phone. If something is not done soon, I will be requesting an entire refund 🤦🏽‍♂️🤷🏽‍♂️ this is not the app I paid for. Idk what this is.

Great results but a few bugs

For the actually editing, I would give this 5 stars. I also appreciate their useful tutorials and the many thoughtful touches that went into the app design (although the UI is rather confusing at first, once you figure out the guiding organization, it makes sense). The cloning/healing feature is the only one I really did not like in terms of how it's implemented. Way too fidgety; no apparent way to deal with larger areas. Other apps do a much better job.The two-hour trial of the pro version has almost persuaded me to scrounge up the $20, though it also introduced some concerns. Using more than one shape caused stability problems. It seems you can't use different colors for added shapes. Liquify didn't perform as well as I hoped, either. All in all, though, the actual photo-editing results were superior to what I've been able to achieve in the numerous other apps I've tried.

My #1 photo editor

I had been playing around with so many photo editing apps hoping for something more than ready made filters and bottom basic crap. After years using photoshop in my school days, no app has even came close to satisfying me. Then I stumbled upon Polarr. FINALLY!!!! The first app to go beyond simple and actually gives various options in different ways. There’s just so many options, I haven’t even figured it all out yet. Like, creating your own filter!! I absolutely LOVE this app and can’t wait to see more to come from Polarr. Why I give 4 stars, there are a few snags here and there, but nothing major. Things like, heavy in to editing a photo and boom all black and the only way to get back is by exiting out of the app. Originally, I hated the window viewer for edges, but that recently has changed and is much better. In the beginning, the app was a bit confusing even with tutorials. Then as I started getting use to everything. Then, suddenly I couldn’t use any of my paid premium options and was told the app no longer existed. It was all pretty strange, then 2 weeks later it was back. I was so upset 😂Anyways, I highly recommend Polarr to anyone, it’s the best photo editor your going to get, other then the super expensive ones.

Polarr is swag 😎

This app is so good. I’m still pretty new to it but from what I’ve seen it’s better then any other editing app I’ve used before. My favorite aspect is how user friendly it is! With other apps I’ve tried they were hard to understand and confusing but with Polarr it was easy to figure out and understand! Another aspect are the styles. I love how easy they are to share and use! It can make it to where it can change it from one color completely to another which is very hard to do on other apps. My last point id like to talk about is their discord server. I recently joined/got invited to it so I haven’t been able to chat much but from what I’ve seen it’s absolutely amazing! I never see discord servers of it to have such active and helpful staff! In all id say polarr has to be my favorite editing app and I’m excited to see what I can learn in the future to come <33
